Obama calls saving money “sexy”; Adults nationwide say they now understand this complex financial concept

A friend told a group of us in an email that the president called insulation and saving money sexy and cool. I figured he was just riffin’, that it was just more good-natured humor stemming from some of Obama’s truly presidential moments (like when he taught people this fall how to sneeze properly). I was about to tell him his joke wasn’t all that funny, but then, for some reason, I figured I’d Google it just to be sure.

Yup. Sure enough. The man said it.

I guess I’d expect that kind of salesmanship if the most powerful man in the world, the President of the United States of America, were talking to 2nd-graders about saying no to drugs. But no. He’s telling adults that saving money is sexy — as part of a broader economic and environmental argument. Truly astounding. The MTV generation is finally at the helm, looks like.

I wonder who in the audience thought to himself, “You know, saving money didn’t make that much sense to me until I heard it said like that. You know how that is? How sometimes you just have to hear something in the right way at the right time? That Obama. Sexy. Saving money. Yes, indeedy! Now I get it!”
